For the second straight month the Xbox One was the best-selling console in the United States, beating the PlayStation 4 once again. Xbox Games Marketing Head Aaron Greenberg celebrated their console victory on Twitter:

Along with calling Xbox Live “the fastest, most reliable gaming network,” Xbox marketing boss Mike Nichols said in a statement, “Thanks to our fans and their excitement for new Xbox One games and the recently launched Xbox One S — which is the only console available this holiday with built-in UHD 4K Blu-ray, 4K video streaming, and HDR for video and gaming — Xbox One was the best-selling console in the U.S. in August, according to NPD Group.”

It remains to be seen if the Xbox One was the #1 selling platform in August (3DS won in July), so stay tuned for the full August 2016 NPD report later this month.

With the slimmer PS4 out next week, PlayStation VR in October, and the PS4 Pro in November, do you think the PS4 will win every month left in 2016?
